CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — People hoping to get into Nevada’s budding medical marijuana business can apply for a state license in August.

The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health announced Friday that it will accept applications from Aug. 5 through Aug. 18.

Each application for a dispensary, cultivation or processing facility requires a nonrefundable $5,000 fee.

The agency will then rank all applications.

To guard against favoritism, the agency says applicants are prohibited from submitting their responses on company letterhead. Additionally, individual names of owners, officers and other principals cannot appear on certain pages of the application.

Applicants are eligible to apply whether or not they have applied for a license from a local government.

Property owners must also authorize in writing the use of their property for a medical marijuana establishment.
